About this Event

Key Note Presenter: Scott Riviere, MS, LPC, RPT-S

Friday: Creative Interventions for Disruptive Behavior Disorders, Scott Riviere, MS, LPC, RPT-S

This workshop will cover how children with disruptive behaviors see the world and why traditional treatment approaches are ineffective with this population. Participants will learn hands-on, practical play therapy techniques that will help these children accept responsibility, lower defensiveness, and increase feelings of competency and success.

Saturday Key Note: Too Cool To Play? Creative Interventions for Adolescents, Scott Riviere, MS, LPC, RPT-S

This workshop will cover many innovative play therapy techniques that the practitioner can utilize immediately. Participants will explore the use of electronic media, social networking, creative art, music, and other experiential activities that help engage adolescents in the healing process. Special attention will be given to working with resistant adolescents and how traumatic experiences can shape their personalities.

Saturday Break-out sessions featuring:

Let’s Play Together! Creative Interventions for Group Play Therapy!, Scott Riviere

Group Play Therapy is an excellent means to help children discover their strengths, learn new skills, and improve interpersonal relationships. Through Group Play Therapy the child can discover that peers have struggles too, which can diminish the barrier of feeling all alone as well as make connections with others that can improve their overall well-being. Participants will discover the power of Group Play Therapy and learn several practical play therapy techniques that they can implement immediately!

Supervision can be playful!: Adding Play Therapy to your supervision, Dr. Athena Drewes - Limited Seats Available

This didactic and experiential workshop will cover, among other things, the nuts and bolts of playful supervision, including why play therapy supervision is necessary, especially for working with trauma; the qualities of a good play therapist supervisor; how to create a culturally sensitive playroom; and how to use play-based activities for individual and group case supervision. Participants will also be able to share some of their supervisory concerns, and try out some play-based techniques for application in supervision.

Utilizing Non-Directive Sand Tray in Play Therapy, Aimee and Sean Jennings - Limited Seats Available

This workshop will focus on utilizing a nondirective sand tray therapy approach within play therapy. The workshop will cover a brief history of sand tray, how to set up a sand tray center in a play therapy room, and how to introduce sand tray to children, adolescents, adults, and parents within play therapy. A key component to sand tray, as with most play therapy techniques, is it is a highly experiential modality and therefore a small scale experiential learning component will be utilized during the training. Practical skills related to utilizing sand tray within play therapy, as well as suggestions for further trainings and skill building, will be addressed. This workshop will briefly touch upon the neurobiological and developmental aspects of using nondirective sand tray within play therapy.

Playroom Parenting: Transferring play therapy skills outside of the playroom and into the home, Amanda Cypret

In a world of distractions and disconnection it is crucial that play therapists utilize skills to build trust, safety and healthy relationships. In order to create lasting change and a brighter future for children and families we must include parents in the play therapy process. In this workshop we will demonstrate and practice teaching and modeling the play therapy skills that help the children we serve. Parents are their child's first teacher and know their child better than anyone else. Let's help them tap their natural ability to support and connect with their child.

Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. each day with the sessions beginning at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 5:00 p.m. Lunch is on your own with many options at the conference site and within walking distance.
